First off let me say that I am very sorry that I have been absent from commenting the last few days.
I am not trying to make excuses for this, but I do have 2 reasons.
First, I told you guys in my Haiku that I had fallen and hurt my knee. I hurt it pretty bad. The way it happened was that on Tuesday I wore my very favorite (at the moment) shoes. I had bought them at a resale shop called Plato's closet and I only paid $10. Because they are opened toe, if the weather is about 55 degrees, I wear them, no matter what.
On Tuesday it was going to be a high of 64 and, unfortunately, raining. When I got to work, I dried my shoes off pretty good on the mats, went to my desk, grabbed my coffee cup and waffle, and went to go to the canteen. (We call it that because it's a Scottish company and they call it that) I stepped off the carpet on to the tile and all of a sudden my feet were out from under me. I must have stepped on a wet spot on the floor and landed on my right knee. It's really too bad that I could stick the landing, and impress the judges a little bit. I am nothing if not graceful.
My knee swelled to 3 times it's size and throbbed like it had it's own heartbeat. I was too embarrassed to let on that I was really hurt, so I just went through the rest of my day as if nothing happened. That night all I did was lay on the couch icing it.
The next day it wasn't much better, I called my Chiropractor to cancel my appointment.
He talked me into coming in stating that he was in fact an actual doctor and he could look at it and tell me if I needed to go to get an x-ray. It turns out that I don't need one. Just some rest and ice.
Most of the time, when I'm not at work, I am on the couch icing my knee. It hurts, after a long day, to sit at my computer at home. (another reason Matt needs to buy me that laptop) But it is feeling much better now.
The second reason is actually some of your fault.
Last week I posted a little video of one of my favorite shows, Reaper. The comments that you guys left stated that it looked like another show, Dead Like Me.
I had never heard of it, so I looked it up online and was actually able to watch the first episode on YouTube. Matt and Emerson watched it with me and that's all it took. Last Friday, we went to Best Buy and bought the boxed set. It includes both seasons of the show and the movie.
So, shamefully, I have been on the couch icing my knee completely obsessed with the show Dead Like Me. But I'm back now and I will be commenting on all of your blogs.
